In Search Of Truth, Hebrews 2:16-3:6

I had to wrestle with this text more than usual in my preparation. Because of teaching I had been surrounded by growing up, my mind kept wanting to do things with this text that on the surface felt natural, but only made the text more and more confusing the closer I looked at it. After some time digging as best as I could into the original languages and getting help from my study mentor (who is fluent in Hebrew and Greek and a marvelous teacher), I've arrived at an understanding of the text that I think makes much better sense (both in context and when compared to the rest of scripture) than the ideas I started out with.

In Search Of Truth, Hebrews 2:10-15

v. 10

The Greek word for "perfect" here means "complete" or "brought to completion". Jesus was morally perfect as a human,  but his purpose as our rescuer was "brought to completion" through his suffering.

The Infamous "Scene 4"!

That's what I have come to call the scene I am currently working on for "Spirit Blade: A World Of Shadows". I'm certain it is the single most complex sequence I have ever conceived or produced for audio drama.

In Search Of Truth, Hebrews 2:1-9


In previous verses, the author of Hebrews established Jesus' superiority when compared to prophets or the angels. Moving forward from here he makes the case that, consequently, we should give even more weight to "what we have heard" (the teaching from Jesus) than any previous messenger of Yahweh. We should give attention to it, and also be sure not to "drift away" from it.

In Search Of Truth, Hebrews 1:5-14

In verses 1-4 of this chapter the author of Hebrews tells us that Jesus, The Anointed One (or "Messiah"), is superior to the prophets of the Old Testament and says in verse 4 that he is also superior to the angels. In verses 5-14 he develops an argument from scripture to support this idea.
